Keep strictly real-steel related topics in >>>/k/, gun and gear porn's cool as long as you don't spam.

If you have a useful guide or want to rework one for the OP, post it and someone will add it to the next one.

Thready Topic: What airsoft purchase has caused you the most buyer's remorse?
>>

Failing at upgrading a TM L96 when I could have just bought a clone. Wasted 700 bucks on that thing.

Well, that only took 11 hours and 50 mg of ritalin but I replaced the inner barrel with a madbull tightbore, replaced the polymer rail with a rather nice alu keymod one, switched out the hop-up for something nicer and converted it to HPA.
>>
>>109593
Some clone of a TM gas M-500 shotgun. It was nice in the beginning, but I swear it was a gas guzzler, then the rubber deteriorated, and then it literally broke into pieces into being completely unusable. It was a long time ago and I doubt I spent more than $200 on it, but still.
>>
>>109593
Wish I could refund these Li-Ion batteries after taking the LiPo pill. Only reason why I got these 2 batteries in the first place is because I thought handling LiPo batteries needed 24/7 care or else they'll assplode.
>>
>>109617
They kinda still do. I had a bunch sitting in their fireproof bags and left them alone for a year or two cuz covid, and many of them have ballooned. So keep them on a charge cycle.

Could anyone here give advice on getting a backpack for an HPA tank? I'm thinking of getting pic related but not sure it'll fit or be comfy.

Tanks dimensions sans regulator are 275x93mm
0,8l
>>
>>109621
At least they will remember you.
The most important thing in making friends in airsoft is to be somewhat memorable and not to blend in so much.
>>
>>>109579
I don't even use a modular plate carrier or chest rig, so no, try again you autistic retard. Plus you're the one absolutely seething over other people wearing whatever shit kit they want, so whatever.
>>
>>109621
they'll think
"that dude has his priorities straight"
>>
>>109624
I'll give you advice.
Don't get no backpack. Don't get HPA. Don't be gay. Don't be even bigger dissapointment for your parents, you already play airsoft.
>>
>>109624
I have a 0.8 and this bag, and the regulator will stick out at the top. So get something taller
>>
>>109666
nothing wrong with hpa, I honestly think it can be easier to just get a compressor instead of fiddling with batteries

They'll find it goofy and remember it fondly. Airsoft players are probably some of the least gatekeepy crowd. You've got the loud outliers but most people don't care at all.
>>
>>109669
Compressors are like 300 bones bruh
>>
>>109769
good charger and a couple batteries are like 100, and you need diff batteries for diff guns
you just need a tank and regulator for HPA and a compressor can be as cheap as 150 if you just have something small

granted I have an industrial compressor for a nailgun because I'm a handyman, but I also have a much smaller one I use for my airbrush I got for around 100

if you take care of the tank and compressor and don't let them rust etc it will literally last forever while lipos for example can be temperamental, just depends on what you like I guess
I started looking into HPA stuff just recently after getting into the AAP and it's very interesting
>>
Do your guys sites not fill up HPA? I don’t think any sites don’t where I am

Hnng my nam boner. Got an m4 just to make it a black hawk down style carbine. Got a carry handle mount and a reddot. Shit looks cash even in the beginning stage. Itll serve its purpose for now. Got yet to find a cheap og colt stock, you know the small 2 position one. Anyways never held an m14, how are the ergos. Got a fucked wrist, so is stay away from angled grips like on your pic.

Most tanks don't last forever and are required to pass hydrotesting every few years, plus a fixed date when they can't be tested anymore.

>>109793
Some people refill from scuba tanks that they refill for cheap at scuba shops. Useful if you need to fill at home or some remote site like a national park or somewhere where there isn't going to be a fill station.
>>
>>109799
usual cyma magic
the moment you open the gearbox it vanishes

>>109847
Wish they didn't put so hot springs in their guns.
>>
>>109814
>ergos
The rock in mag is a bit fiddly, and the selector is awkward, but it's an AEG so once it's on ergos aren't a big deal.

>Got an m4 just to make it a black hawk down style
poast pics plz

True, CYMA seem pretty resistant to quick change spring gearboxes as well.

Classic Army HK33, bought it just before LCT announced theirs, really shit quality plastics (lower receiver, stock, handguard, selector, flimsy as fuck). It's an old design, and it shows. Functionally okay, but if only I'd waited.

Platinum seems to get them at least

That's great, and their platinum line is decent, but quick change spring should be standard by now, I mean AEG gearbox designs have barely changed in 30 years.

I'm looking at HPA rigs so this might be a dumb question. Can you do it with an electric air compressor like you do your tires with?
>>
>>110027
Yes. As long as you can adjust the bar levels
>>
>>110027
Dude, unless your tires fill to 300 Bar, do not try this.

Guys I've never really played woodland but I want to start. I have great cqb setup but nothing good for woods maybe except specna edge which I could easily tune up to 420fps. Is it worth it to buy something special or just go with this specna? Won't I get dominated by 550fps DMRs or 600fps snipers? Im thinking about novritsch ssg 10 but idk

Apologies anon, i meant to reply earlier. Atm its a basic 14 inch barrel m4, it only got a t1 style red dot on the carry handle adapter as a proof of concept. I think i dig the heoght above bore on that setup, its comfy. I gotta see to making some sort of mock supressor body for the small supressor tracer unit that i got. I want the thing looking beefy, besides my barrel is too long, the style i was going for had a short barrel. In summary i gotta get a small colt stock, the car 15 handguard (mine is front wired), get the period apropriate red dot aaaand the barrel is too long. pic related is what i want and mine atm is the we got x at home meme.

trying to find a KJ Works KP-01 E2 (dual gas)
Every US based retailer is sold out. Any that I find in stock are from overseas retailers that are sketchy, will take forever to ship, and want stupid high shipping costs. Can a kind hearted anon point me in the right direction?
>>
>>110619
I should also add that I live in the US.
I have tried every US store in the pastebin sticky.
>>
>>110619
I have one, but it’s broken, if you want to fix it and pay for shipping I’ll send it to you for free.
>>
>>110628
Do you know what broke on it?
>>
>>110630
The guide rod for the spring won’t properly stay in place causing the gas to leak out. It’s probably a easy fix but desu after buying a AAP and spending on upgrades I don’t need any other pistol so it’s just collecting dust.
>>
>>110634
Cool. I could probably figure that out. Send me your info to this email hopped_up_anon222@hotmail.com
Please send another picture with a written note and one of the parts. Please excuse me for the caution. We can talk further via email. Thanks anon.

the only M2 worth buying is the King Arms GBBR
>>
>>110711
only thing you can even do is maybe transplant a better hop up bushing into it (90% is gonna require jerry rigging) and make sure nozzle, piston etc. don't leak air. And that's assuming the entire thing goes back together as intended and you don't get stuck with a bag of gun. Cheap springers are notorious for not being designed for disassembly.

Anything from a&k. They make a lot of cool shit and their's is basically the only sten available (I'm not paying $50 for a toy gun mag even if I can afford a 17s so no gbbr stens) but their externals are wobbly shit and their internals feel straight outa 2008. I regret it every time I lose my senses and buy anything from a&k.

Some lady near me was selling a lot of airsoft guns that apparently her kid had left behind when he moved out. Like 30 springer pistols (who tf buys those and in that quantity) a springer famas, mp5 and a garand, plus a couple of shotguns and more shit.
Anyway there was also a AGM STG, ICS Galil, ASG Tac 6, SIG GSR and a pretty nice scope. Copped it for about a 100 euro

The CYMA Platinium CM.041G MP5s are good right? Everyone tells me they're really good.
